After covering the foundation of EVPN-VXLAN in the first video, this video will cover EVPN building blocks with an emphasis on the data center. Learn from the RFC authors themselves why network virtualization simplifies the management of your infrastructure and how to increase the performance and efficiency of your applications and workloads. You’ll also find out what EVPN-VXLAN business outcomes a CTO is looking for and how network virtualization can reduce CapEx/OpEx, especially in a multi-vendor data center.
